1/21/16: Flint Water Crisis / DPS Crisis

Last Updated by MiWeek Editor on

Tonight the MiWeek team covers the biggest stories making headlines across Michigan, from the Detroit Historical Museum.

  • Flint Water Crisis – Governor Snyder releases his emails in the Flint water crisis, and makes a pledge to fix things for Flint residents in his State of the State address. The MiWeek team takes a look at the governor’s latest actions and analyzes whether it will be enough to make things right.
  • Detroit Public Schools Crisis – Governor Snyder also has a DPS crisis on his hands, as most of the schools shut down in a massive teacher sickout and protest. And it’s all happening on the day President Obama comes to town. The MiWeek team debates what’s next for DPS and looks at the President’s possible role in both the DPS and Flint water emergencies.
  • One Detroit Initiative – Host Christy McDonald introduces viewers to DPTV’s “One Detroit” initiative.
